Hi guys ! I am proud to announce that the new version of Picobat is out. There is quite a long while since I have posted a new version of Picobat. Quite a lot of changes have been made since last year.
There is two main new features interpreter multi-threading and operators precedence
The biggest flaw (in terms of execution speed) of Picobat under windows
was certainly the need to start new
dos9 processes regularly. Indeed,
echo test | find "test" require a new process to be
FOR had a somehow similar behaviour). In a batch, where this
commands can be ran hundred times, it resulted in a significant speed
218.1 solves this by just spawning separate threads inside
a single Picobat interpreter, So that it gets faster than ever !
Picobat behaviour used to be a bit awkward as since the very first versions
the redirection operators (
>) owned precedence over all conditional
This behaviour has now changed and lines like the following are perfectly valid :
echo test > file & dir > fd
cmd.exe has greatly been improved.
There is also a few minor changes since the last release:
The file searching functions has been strongly optimized.
Great improvement in the manual, especially for the English translation.
New, easy-to-use build system.
Lots of minor bug-fixes.
Getting the new version
Sounds cool isn’t it ? Go and get the new dos9 bundle
